How a Lawyer Can Help With Your Business
If you own a business, you may need legal help. Here are a couple ways in which a business law attorney can help:
- Business formation. There are several ways to form your company. You could have a sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company (LLC), or corporation. Each structure comes with pros and cons, so contact a business law attorney to choose the right option and ensure your business is adequately protected.
- Contracts. Contracts often involve complex legal terminology. It’s possible that other parties will try to change the terms of a contract or take advantage of you in other ways. Seek legal help to ensure your legal rights are protected.
- Lawsuits. Having an attorney on your side early on can help with business operations so you can avoid lawsuits. Still, lawsuits are sometimes inevitable, so work with an attorney to mitigate the damage to your business. Whether you want to negotiate a settlement or go to trial, your lawyer can help you make the right decision.
- Bankruptcy. Bankruptcy is an unfortunate situation but it happens to a lot of businesses. Unexpected events can lead to serious money matters, such as excessive debt and decreases in revenue. Instead of sinking further and further into debt, consider bankruptcy. There are several options to choose from to help you start over financially. In some cases, you can save your business.
There are situations in which you may have to go to court. A business law attorney can litigate on your behalf, whether you are a plaintiff or defendant. Get help with issues such as:
- Real estate conflicts
- Mishandling of corporate assets
- Commercial collections
- Complex commercial disputes
But before you go to court, you have options. Talk to your lawyer about pre-suit negotiations, judgment enforcement, and settlements.
